“Quick Nice Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We popped into the visitor center. There are some interesting artifacts and pictures here. It is worthwhile to stop in. And you get some of their excellent water while you are there too.

“Well, ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Nice looking on the inside and we did look around some. We were looking for some water to drink and buy. The lady behind the desk stayed on her cell phone the whole time we were there. She even was kinda glaring at us like we were bothering her by coming in. Buy it at the store and save your time for the other tourist friendly places.

“Best Spring Water I have had”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This small visitors center is just down near the end of bathhouse row. It has a small "museum" and gift shop. Lots of shirts for sale but you can also stock up on cases of water.

“We enjoyed this little visitor center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

It is free to visit Mountain Valley Spring Water Visitor Center. They have a small parking lot to the right of the building but the spaces are extremely small so it's very hard to get in & out of the parking spots. But the parking is free also.

The Visitor Center is small but a neat experience. We enjoying see their bottle collection of Mountain Valley Spring Water bottles - all shapes and sizes made over the years. The oldest one on display dates back to 1894! See photos.

You also can get a free sample of their Spring Water. See photo. According to their brochure, the water is 3500 years old! The water fell as precipitation and journeyed down into the earth then back up again collecting minerals as it traveled before emerging in their protected natural spring.

While there, you can buy various sizes of their famous Spring Water or carbonated Sparkling Spring Water....available in traditional glass bottles or newer plastic bottles. See photo.

This company has been bottling water since 1871! See photo.

They had tables & chairs you could sit at to rest, take a break, and enjoy their water.
